Swedish Pancakes with a View

Last weekend, I visited my best friend in Vermont. She lives on a gorgeous hill overlooking an incredible view of the mountains. We spent the weekend eating great food (be prepared for post about that!), looking at baby items for her registry and walking/ enjoying the outdoors.

On Sunday morning, we planned to take a nice walk and hit up some of my favorite places before I headed home... but before that, we needed breakfast. Kelly realized I had never had her swedish pancakes so she whipped up a batch with some berry sauce and we ate it outside, taking in the sunshine and the amazing views.

Swedish Pancakes
My BFF Kelly

2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup flour (mixture of unbleached white flour & whole wheat)
2 tbsp flaxseed meal

Lightly beat eggs and mix in milk. Incorporate flour and flaxseed meal until just mixed.

Heat pan with canola oil over medium-high heat. Add about 1/3 cup of batter to pan, and swivel pan to spread batter to evenly cover bottom of the pan. Let it cook for about a minute or so and then flip the pancake and cook the other side.

Remove from the pan and roll up.

Berry Sauce
1 1/2 - 2 cups Frozen berries (or fresh)
splash of water
1/4 cup maple syrup (add more if you want it sweeter)
dash of cinnamon, nutmeg & ginger
a few drops of orange extract or orange juice

Add ingredients together in a sauce pan and simmer for about 10 minutes or until berries break down.
